Bear | Wales
Bear is a beautiful 1-year-old German shepherd from Newport who causes mischief everywhere he goes. He's at his happiest when he's exploring the great outdoors, making a mess or playing with his four-legged friends. Bear's my shadow. He's always at my side, following me everywhere I go - a typical GSD; he's very loyal and protective of his family! Bear loves being the centre of attention which makes him an excellent model; he really works the camera. Bear is also partially bionic. Come August, he'll be sporting two brand new titanium hips and will become an unstoppable super-doggo!

You'd be barking mad not to meet our other winners, too!
